Why All the Pain? A Conversation on the Meaning of Suffering

What do we do with all the pain? In a world filled with tragedy, trauma and war, we all must reckon with suffering. Does it have any value? Is suffering to be avoided at all costs? Is there a deeper meaning to pain? Join theologian Miroslav Volf, Professor at Yale Divinity School, and Jake Jackson, Lecturer in Philosophy at UPenn for this important conversation. Moderated by Dr. Leah Anderson, Executive Director , SNF Paideia Program.
